About Sub-Zero refrigeration

About Sub-Zero refrigeration

Sub-Zero really manufacturers two styles of refrigeration, their professional built-in (BI) series and an integrated or flush (700) series.

Sub-Zero was started by Westye F. Bakke, who built the first freestanding freezer in the basement of his Madison, WI home in 1943. He was a businessman with a keen sense for trends and a strong knowledge of refrigeration. He would found Sub-Zero Freezer Company just two years later in an old two car garage (funny how most of the appliance companies start that way).

Sub-Zero remains a family owned company to this day and still features twin compressors for better temperature and odor control as well as magnetic crispers and a vacuum seal to arrest air infiltration in order to keep food fresher, longer (which happens to be the company motto).

Sub-Zero offers a slew of options in the “Built-In” category. This type of unit is available in a standard height of 84”, a standard depth of 24” and varying widths ranging from 30” to 48”. These units vent from the top and the classic stainless steel grill helps provide a professional look to highlight the kitchen. Built-in refrigerators can be installed with overlay panels (custom cabinet look) or with stainless steel door panels. A flush inset design installation option also allows the unit to sit flush with surrounding cabinetry. There are 2 different handle options available: Pro and tubular.

In addition to the twin compressors, seal and magnetic crispers, the BI series also offers a unique “air scrubber” and water purifying system. Foods emit ethylene gases as they spoil. The air scrubber scrubs the ethylene gases off foods allowing them to stay fresher longer as well as not allowing the gases to cross contaminate other foods.

Sub-Zero BI vs 700 Series Refrigerators

Altough the BI has better features with the air scrubber and the water purifier, it is a question of style. The integrated look totally hides the refrigerator behind cabinets, where as the BI and pro built-in is way more pronounced especially in stainless steel.

REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER NOISES

CAUSE:

  • Fan blade or fan motor not working properly
  • Ice build up on the fan inside the freezer
  • Obstruction due to over-filling the unit
  • Normal operation

Sub Zero refrigerator condenser fan motor – STEPS TO VERIFY ISSUE:

To determine which fan motor may be the source of noise:

  1. Open both the refrigerator & freezer, or all unit doors – does the noise stop?
    • Refer to Condenser Fan Motor Operation for additional information.
  2. Close the refrigerator section only or upper door on a wine storage unit, does the noise return?
    • If so, the noise is related to the refrigerator evaporator fan motor
  3. Open the refrigerator again and close the freezer section only or drawer on a wine storage unit – does the noise return?
    • If so the noise is related to the freezer evaporator fan motor.
    • The freezer fan is usually not visible but ice may be.
  4. Close the doors after testing.

These steps assume a standard refrigerator / freezer combination unit. Steps will need to be adjusted accordingly for all refrigerator, all freezer, or wine storage units.

  • See Condenser cleaning instructions, if the condenser has not been cleaned in the last 3 to 6 months.
  • In some models it is possible to disable the freezer section to allow a manual defrost in case the drawer or door was left open.
